G Gathering Chesapeake Wine Festival raises funds for cancer center

Chesapeake Wine Festival raises funds for cancer center



The Rotary Club of Chesapeake recently held its premier Chesapeake Wine Festival at the City's Jubilee site. A fund raiser for the club's charities, the event was well attended and was such a hit that it is guaranteed to become a popular annual event. The Rotary's principle beneficiary from the day's profit will be The Sid Oman Cancer Center at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center. Former Mayor of both Chesapeake and Elizabeth City, Sid Oman was a beloved member of the club for decades.
